The Frostburg State University Flute Studio will celebrate music old and new with FSU students presenting solo and chamber works for the flute and piano. The recital will be held on Monday, May 2, at 8 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center. This performance is free and open to the public.
The repertoire will include Claude Debussy’s popular “Syrinx” for solo flute, based on the mythology of Pan and Syrinx. The alto flute will be featured on several movements of “Eight Pieces” by American composer Lowell Liebermann, and the opera aria “Non più mesta accanto al fuoco,” the finale of Gioachino Rossini’s opera “La Cenerentola,” will be heard in Frederic Chopin’s “Variations on a Theme by Rossini.”
The FSU Flute Ensemble will perform the second half of the program. Flutists Amanda Kiser and Jessica Bussing will perform with pianist Mengwan Tu. The “Flower Duet” from Léo Delibes’ “Lakmé” will be followed by the virtuosic “Waltz di Bravura” by famed brothers and flutists from the 19th century, Franz and Charles Doppler.
